March 2021. We stayed at Nehalem Bay State Park for 4 days. Turning off of HWY 101 to the park was somewhat of a bumpy pothole road for about a half mile or so. Then very good roads in the park itself. No one at the main entrance so we drove into our loop (A) space 32 and backed in. Had just enough space for our 21' trailer and pickup truck. We hooked up to power and water, no sewer hookup. Two dump stations were out at the main entrance. This spot had many short trees and had a fair amount or room... Read More

Then very good roads in the park itself. No one at the main entrance so we drove into our loop (A) space 32 and backed in. Had just enough space for our 21' trailer and pickup truck. We hooked up to power and water, no sewer hookup. Two dump stations were out at the main entrance. This spot had many short trees and had a fair amount or room between us and the other campers. It also had a picnic table and a fire ring and was backed into the dunes area. It was just a short walk to the beach entrance path from our site. At the beach was very large area and had the whitest sand I have ever seen except in Hawaii. The parks bathrooms were spotless but the showers in our area (A) were shut down because of no hot water. You had to go to loop (B) to take a shower. As far as I could see all the RV camping spots were back in's and mixed in were tent camping areas. In other locations were Yurt's you could rent too. This park has many-many camping sites as well as selling ICE and Wood. My wife really loved this park as it was very beautiful. The park had a host at each loop as with most state camp grounds do. The host I talked to was Ed, a very nice, friendly and knowledgeable guy. We took our bikes for a ride on the bike friendly roads and enjoyed the ride as this park has a long loop bike trail to use. We took a ride to Warrenton to go to Walmart one day and then took a ride the next day to Nehalem and ate fish and chips at Riverside Fish `n Chips. The food there was fabulous as it was rated 4.5 out of 5 with Google. The wife also shopped at Hope Chest thrift store one day in Nehalem, I think. Over all for the $132.00 it cost us it was worth every penny to camp there.

Large place with large sand dunes to provide shelter from any off shore winds. Reservations needed well in advance, I got lucky...a family had an opening for someone coming in a day late. That is how friendly this place was. Helping a stranger in need. We shared some wine as the sun set. Showers were numerous, convenient and clean. Despite the typical close together campsites it did not feel cramped because plenty of small trees and plants to give a sense of privacy.
